Grace at Home No. 337

Hello and welcome to the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace!

This week I've been slow getting back into the swing of things. You may have seen that our beloved dog died last week, and the grief of losing her has been intense. The writer Thomas Lynch says that grief is the tax we pay for loving. Isn't that right? We loved Cocoa very much.

Meanwhile, many of y'all have been busy! Here are a few links from our last party I thought you'd enjoy.

If you've ever struggled with getting a room decorated to your satisfaction, you'll appreciate these instructions for creating a beautiful focal point from Yvonne at Stone Gable.

If you're wishing that a room in your home had some industrial charm, did you know you can create the look yourself? Check out this tutorial for a faux industrial brick wall from Ashley at Cherished Bliss!

If you're looking for kitchen inspiration, you might like to see the updates I've just completed in my kitchen.

If you have cherished family photos and wonder how to display them, you'll want to check out this post from Whispers of the Heart.

If you're a user of essential oils, you might enjoy these springtime diffuser blend recipes from Joy at Artful Homemaking.

I'm always looking for recipes that use chicken, so I was glad to see this post from Kit at The Kittchen--lots of ideas for using shredded chicken.

Last but not least, if you've ever struggled with doubting God's goodness, you'll appreciate this post from Marva at Sun Sparkle Shine. 

A big thank you to everyone who joined the last party!  I'm so grateful for each person who links up.

Now for this week's party! Grace at Home is a place for you to share anything related to making your home a place of grace. I invite you to link posts about
  • DIY projects
  • decorating
  • recipes
  • hospitality
  • homemaking tips
  • parenting
  • marriage
  • faith
  • self-care
  • soul care
Whatever you do to make your home a place of grace, I'd like to hear about it.  Here's what I ask of you.  Please include the permalink to your post, not your blog's home page.  Please let people know that you've linked up.  No more than three posts per person, please.  Note that if you link a post here, you are giving me permission to share your post, including a photo.  And visit at least one of the other party participants--that's what really makes it a party!
